Thank you to everyone who joined us last week in Portland, Oregon, at the Viewpoint Collaborate 2017 User Conference! The nearly 2,000 attendees were able to network, collaborate, learn, and share best practices with people and companies from all over the world.

Our keynote speakers started off each day with fun, inspirational presentations that led to knowledgeable insights and information-gathering from all who attended. With more than 130 breakouts and learning sessions, the takeaways, learnings, and insight were abundant. Let’s break down the top 10 takeaways from this year’s awesome user conference.
